We are not slow here in Audlem, we are simply considerate to all motorists. How else would someone with only reverse gear at their disposal realise that there were oncoming vehicles approaching?
Can anyone recommend a reliable, local fridge repair man? :-(
How slow are we in Audlem? I have only just realized that the "oncoming vehicles" sign in Stafford Street opposite no.28 faces the wrong way.
I am keen to discover how Mr T is to service the needs of these eager ladies, in fact I'm becoming quite emotional about it. Surely in order to maintain such vigorous activity he will obviously require the use of a bicycle and regular visits to the Priest House to indulge in their all day breakfasts!
Does 'Worried of Audlem' have an internet emotion for extremely lucky, followed by exhausted?
Er....... obviously some of them didn't when put through the Audlem Online text translation system. Nevermind there's a few in there to be going on with....
I'm worried that Ann T is being denied the attentions of Mr T in having to satisfy the onerous demands on his services of Country Girl and other ladies here. So here's a few more for the pot if they work...

I read with great interest and pride about the visistor from Nantwich who lost his wallet in the village and subsequently had it returned. indeed, he was very lucky because many other locations throughout the UK would have seen it disapear into oblivion. Not only are Audlem residents renowned for their generosity, but clearly their honesty too.
Regarding the ongoing dilemma of the lost glove, would it not be an idea to form a search party and scour the last sighting location. This way, not only would we hopefully discover the fate of the item but also alleviate Molly's temporary insomnia. The owner surely can't be expected to do this single handed!
Here is one for you, sward x

(> <) so I ate it!
Molly stole the words out of mouth. If only I had an emoticon to express my sadness :-(
Brilliant Sward, but I personally can't be bothered except the odd cheering up one to my loved ones. Still it is good to know.
To CG and AnnT: There is no need to mither the webteam for emoticons. You compose your own at the keyboard. Suggest also you both google for ascii art and each pick an item for the other.
I am not against any of these things per se indeed I use them on Facebook to my daughters! especially the one in Australia. What I find somewhat irritating is the lack of appreciation for the work that will probably be involved at a time when other Audlem Online related work is occupying a largish slice of my man's life.
I imagine a mail to the Webteam would get it considered and I am trying to take it as a compliment to the years of hard work that has gone in to the splendid site that this is demanded.
I must learn to take what I perceive to be demanding criticism of the tech team. Feel free to criticise me by all means.
Can someone please update me on the fate of the blue glove? It is now 4 days since the last positive sighting and I haven't been able to sleep for the worry.
On Saturday 8th March between 10am and 12 noon the local Methodist Chapel are holding a Coffee Morning. There will be a cake stall, bring and buy and a raffle as well as the cups of tea and coffee which will be on sale. Please come and join us for a coffee and a social chat.
Meet on Audlem car park - The March ARS (Audlem Ramblers Society) walk is in Dovedale and is organised by Chris Roche. This is his description: We start from the Car Park at the old Railway station at Thorpe on the Tissington Trail. Free but not very large - (if it is full on Saturday there is another pay park a couple of hundred yards up the road).
W 001°45.2421' N 53°03.0141' (For those with car Sat Nav). SK 1658 5036 (for those with OS map). It is about 2.5 miles NNW of Ashbourne.
An easy 9.5 mile walk mainly on consolidated limestone paths at the side of the river and along the Tissington Trail. A few fields to cross but not very muddy, and only one short but fairly steep climb out of Dovedale. There are very few stiles.
Loos in Thorpe soon after the walk start, at Milldale and Tissington. There are no pubs but I think there is a coffee shop in Milldale.
As it is Dovedale, it could be fairly busy on Saturdays - there were quite a few people about in the week, but it is an OK walk for dogs as we only go through three fields with sheep. However there will be cyclists on the Tissington Trail so you need to watch your dogs on that stretch.
A pleasant walk, dry underfoot and as the Trail section is mostly on elevated embankment the views from there are good.
I would assess it as a very easy 2 booter. Meet up on Audlem car park at 8.30am on Saturday 8th March.
